My daughter Lily graduated cum laude today from Butler University. I am so proud of her. She completely maxed out her undergraduate experience.
Lily majored in Sociology and International Studies with a minor in Religious Studies. She was an RA for two years and served in student government. During senior year she interned at the prosecutor’s office in Indianapolis. She did a senior survey project on LGBT issues. And during spring breaks she did community service projects.
Her entire junior year was spent abroad, fall semester at MacQuarie University in Sydney, Australia and spring semester at Sodertorn University outside Stockholm, Sweden. During her four years, she visited over 20 other countries.
I recall hearing college counselors saying “College is what you make of it.”
